I have had the pleasure of working with Kats Designs for the past 10 years. Their entire staff and quality of product produced are excellent! My three daughters have had all their skating, and solo dance costumes designed by Kats during this period. Over the years, we have received many wonderful compliments about their extraordinarily beautiful costumes. We always enjoy the entire process of designing a costume at Kats Designs. From the moment you step through the door you are made to feel a valued customer. Their design team and expert seamstresses work closely with you and create the perfect costume. The quality and creativity in each and every costume they produce is phenomenal, coupled always with the perfect fit! I highly recommend Kats Designs to anyone looking for a personable, friendly, professional design team who are also extremely capable of producing spectacular original costumes every time! Thank you!

My daughter is a 3 time Ontario Provincial Champion in Rhythmic Gymnastics and has been involved in this sport for over 9 years. Both my daughter and her coach are very detailed orientated people, especially when it comes to competition costumes. The overall design and coloring of the costume must coordinate and work well with the routine's music.
Over the years I have tried several designers for custom made competition suits and I found that Kats Design was always able to offer my daughter the best design that would meet the stringent requirements both her & her coach were seeking. Prompt delivery and friendly staff were another key factor keeping our family as a repeat customer. I have no hesitation saying that Kats Design is one of the top professional companies in the customs made costume industry.
Through my experience dealing with Kats Design for all these years, I know that from the moment I present the music of the routine, the basic color that my daughter was looking for, and our general ideas that I could rest assured that I was in good hands. This has been proven by the high quality design and implementation of the costumes they have delivered. Keep up the good work, a friendly, professional and quality company is really hard to come by these days. I have no hesitation in recommending Kats design to anyone.

Beautiful costumes!!! Every year we are so excited and happy to receive the stunning, high quality costumes that Kats Designs produce. I have gone through many costume companies over the past 25 years that KICKS Dance Studio has been in business, but since Kats has been making our competitive and recreational dance costumes, I can relax. The professional, caring staff look after every detail Keeping in mind budget, age appropriate costumes and exquisite details! The costumes are always ready by the promised date and there is never a problem if some of the costumes require minor alterations. Kats Designs look after everything for you so the dancer looks wonderful in their custom made costume. Thank-you to the Kats Designs Team for all your hard work, your attention to detail and most of all your warm, caring personalities which makes it a pleasure to deal with you. I wish you continued success for years to come.

My experience in dealing with Kats Designs is second to none. Coming from across the Atlantic where everything looks the same I had the pleasure of Kats being recommended by a friend. I have now had dealings for the past 2 years and had numerous costumes supplied. The choice is yours and they help you design and come up with some amazing ideas to suit your needs. The quality of the fabric and colours is such that it lasts for years. The service provided is top class and you always get your items by the agreed timescale and more often than not sooner. I am in the process of having 2 outfits made for my daughter and as usual cannot wait to see the finished article. I would have no problem in recommending Kats to all my friends.

I was referred to your company through a friend who told me about your work and highly recommended you. Well now my daughter has received her competitive skate dress I can see why you were spoken of so highly. First my daughter is thrilled and the dress is a work of art and fits her so well. Ordering was really easy and thank you for the beautiful designs. I too will definitely refer your services and I am excited to work with you again.

I received my rhythmic suit and it's unbelievable, the fit is perfect and I wore it for the first time everyone who saw it went crazy over it. This will be my fifth rhythmic suit from your company and I have to say each time you seem to step it up a notch. If I can do as well in my competitions as your company has done with my suit then I have a winning chance. Your work is truly beautiful thank you to your design team and production staff who as always have been so helpful and inspirational with this process.

The skate dresses we ordered are stunning. We were so happy to receive them. They fit perfectly and the crystals were gorgeous. We were really pleasantly surprised at how every detail shown in your designs are in the dresses. The girls are very excited about competing in their new dresses and we will definitely be coming back next season. Thank you!

I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the apparel Kats Designs has designed for me over the years. I remember I was so amazed how wonderful my first Kats Designs costume felt. The costume fit my body like an artistic, colorful, true second skin that molded uniformly over my entire body.
It's been more than 5 years dealing with Kats Designs and receiving my first costume and it's been a great pleasure doing business with you ever since. I truly appreciate how your pattern makers have so accurately made alterations to my patterns over the years as my body changes so everything continues to fit like a perfect second skin and stay functional.
The designs and fabrics used are absolutely awesome, and I love the softness of the fabrics used for leotards and body suits. I like the freedom and range of motion I have and I get so many wonderful compliments when I wear my Kats Designs apparel.
Thanks so much for everything!

I was nervous about ordering a rhythmic suit on-line and being in Australia I'm a long way away if anything went wrong. Well your designs were amazing as was the finished product. My daughter was thrilled with her suit and received compliments everywhere she went. I would highly recommend your company and am excited about ordering from you again.

Kats Designs have provided my daughter with competitive figure skating dresses from Juvenile to Junior Ladies. Our dealings with them have always been of the highest professional standards. The caring and creative staff offer assistance on all levels. From creating the concept, designing, fitting, and taking care of any last minute details; they have provided excellent service! I would highly recommend them to any figure skater or dancer!

Our relationship with Kats Designs started ten years ago when we worked with the designers on their very first custom rhythmic gymnastics suit. I still have that suit! The countless fittings, alterations, and adjustments it took to achieve the extremely tight yet super elastic quality of a rhythmic suit turned out to be well worth the effort. Since then we have worked with Kats Designs on dozens of suits, all finished to the highest degree of quality and professionalism.
Kats Designs' focus is on customer satisfaction, no matter what it takes. I can remember times when it took several performances with the suit to highlight exactly the particular way a certain fabric or design would look or behave on the carpet. Kats Designs' was happy to make tweaks to the final product to address this and this was very much appreciated.
I have also appreciated the spirit of collaboration and involvement encouraged at Kats Designs. Staff are equally comfortable using their own ideas for designs or adapting mine. I have always felt welcome to come in and browse all the latest fabrics and trims and to try out new combinations in the studio. When I am not able to go in person, it has been a huge benefit for me to be able to receive pdf files of designs and fabrics in full colour and to communicate effectively by email.
Kats Designs is not just about making suits either. They have a genuine interest in the gymnasts, their performances and the progress they make as they develop and move through their careers. This has evolved into a mutual respect for each other and a confidence in the attention to detail that goes into every suit. It has been a pleasure working with Kats Design over the years and watching them develop into a world class costume designer for performance wear
